Rambur Named To GMCB
The newest appointee to the Green Mountain Care Board says her skills and background make her a good addition to the group set up regulate hospital budgets and reduce rates in health care and health insurance.
Betty Rambur is a professor of Health Policy and Nursing at UVM, and previously chaired North Dakota’s Health Financing Reform Task Force.
Rambur says one of the areas she wants to look at is the paradox of why some people are undertreated while others receive care they don’t necessarily need.
"The incentives in the traditional fee-for-service system do fuel overtreatment. And I think in a state like Vermont where we’re testing out different funding and delivery mechanisms, we can actually really get it just right," Rambur said.
Rambur says she felt called to serve on the board and looks forward to dealing with all aspects of health policy. And she says she believes we have the skills and ability in this state to create a health care system that better serves the population.
